Avidyne Announces ADS-B Rebate Program

Avidyne offers $500 “Don’t Wait” Rebate for customers who equip with qualifying Avidyne ADS-B avionics in Q3 2016.

Oshkosh, WI – Sunday, July 24, 2016 – 

Avidyne Corporation announced that they are offering a “Don’t Wait” ADS-B Rebate in the amount of $500 for single-engine piston aircraft owners who equip with qualifying ADS-B avionics between June 17 and September 30, 2016. 


“We have made it really simple for customers to buy Avidyne ADS-B Out compliant avionics and receive a $500 Instant Rebate, with no waiting period and none of the hassles associated with the program recently announced by the FAA and the Department of Transportation,” said Mitch Biggs, Avidyne’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “In addition, customers who purchase an IFD540 plus an AXP340 ADS-B Out Transponder are also eligible for our current promotion which is a FREE SkyTrax100 ADS-B In ($2,500 VALUE) for a total savings of $3,000!  There’s simply no reason to wait.”


“The recently-announced FAA Rebate is pretty convoluted and I expect it will frustrate a lot of aircraft owners,” said Avidyne CEO, Dan Schwinn. “And it also has had the adverse effect of causing people to not equip now, so we decided to offer a really simple instant rebate that customers can take advantage of today without all the hassle.”


Avidyne’s $500 “Don't Wait Rebate” is available in lieu of the FAA Rebate for owners of single-engine piston aircraft who purchase Avidyne ADS-B Out compliant avionics between June 17 and September 30, 2016. Click here for full details  http://www.avidyne.com/landing/faa-rebate-corporate.asp


About the FAA Rebate

(http://www.faa.gov/nextgen/equipadsb/rebate/media/ADS-B_Rebate_Program_Rules.pdf)

The FAA and Department of Transportation announced last month that they are going to offer a $500 cash-back rebate to owners of single-engine piston aircraft who install compliant ADS-B OUT equipment.  However, due to a Federally-mandated waiting period, this program does not take effect until sometime in September. Once this program eventually goes active, it will require aircraft owners to apply for a ‘rebate reservation,’ and wait for an ‘incentive code,’ then once installed, fly specified compliance flights before receiving full approval. Owners must ensure that their Civil Aircraft Registry information is accurate, as any discrepancies must be corrected before a valid "Incentive Code" will be issued.  FAA Rebate checks will be issued at a later date.
